Welcome to Adams/Tire
Introducing Adams/Tire
Introducing Adams/Tire
Adams/Tire software is a module you use with Adams/Car, Adams/Chassis, Adams/Solver, or Adams/View to add tires to your mechanical model and to simulate maneuvers such as braking, steering,acceleration, free-rolling, or skidding. Adams/Tire lets you model the forces and torques that act on a tireas it moves over roadways or irregular terrain.Adams/Tire is a set of shared object libraries that Adams/Solver calls through the Adams DIFSUB,GFOSUB, GSESUB subroutines. These subroutines calculate the forces and moments that tires exert ona vehicle as a result of the interaction between the tires and road surface.You can use Adams/Tire to model tires for either vehicle-handling, ride and comfort, and vehicle-durability analyses.
Handling analyses are useful for studying vehicle dynamic responses to steering, braking, andthrottle inputs. For example, you can analyze the lateral accelerations produced for a givensteering input at a given vehicle speed.
Ride and comfort analyses are useful for assessing the vehicle's vibrations due to uneven roadswith short wavelength obstacles (shorter than tire circumference), such as level crossings,grooves, or brick roads.
3D contact analyses are useful for generating road load histories and stress and fatigue studiesthat require component force and acceleration calculation. These studies can help you calculatethe effects of road profiles, such as pothole, curb, or Belgian block.
Adams/Tire Modules
Adams/Tire has a line of tire modules that you can use with Adams/View, Adams/Solver, Adams/Car,and Adams/Chassis. The modules let you model the rubber tires found on many kinds of vehicles, suchas cars, trucks, and planes. More specifically, the modules let you model the force and torque that tires produce to accelerate, brake, and steer vehicles. The five modules available in Adams/Tire are:
Adams/Tire Handling Module
Adams/Tire Handling incorporates the following tire models for use in vehicle dynamic studies:
3Welcome to Adams/Tire
Introducing Adams/TireUsing the UA-Tire Model521-Tire Model
Adams/Tire Handling uses a point-follower method to calculate tire normal force. Standard Adams/Tireis limited to two-dimensional roads, but can be extended with the three-dimensional capabilities of Adams/Tire 3D Spline Road.*
The formulae used in the Pacejka tire models are derived from publications, and are commonly referred to as the Pacejka method in the automotive industry. Dr. Pacejka himself is not personally associated with the development of these tire models, nor does he endorse them in any way
Adams/Tire 3D Spline Road Module
Adams/3D Spline Road lets you define an arbitrary three-dimensional smooth road surface. In addition,you can place three-dimensional road obstacles, such as a curb, pothole, ramp, or road crown, on top of the underlying smooth road surface. You can use the 3D Spline Road Module with any of the tire modelsin Adams/Tire. Use the smooth road part in combination with any of the handling tire models, or use themore advanced FTire to deal with road obstacles for ride and comfort and durability analysis.
Adams/Tire 3D Shell Road Module
Adams/Tire 3D Shell Road uses a three-dimensional equivalent-volume method to calculate tire normalforce on three-dimensional roads for use in predicting vehicle loads for durability studies. You can usethe Pacejka 2002, Pacejka TIME, Pacejka '89, Pacejka '94, or Fiala models to calculate the tire handlingforces and moments (lateral force, longitudinal force, aligning torque, and so on).
Specific Tire Models
In addition to the tire models in the Adams/Tire Handling Module, Adams/Tire supplies specific tiremodels:
Pacejka Motorcycle Tire ModelA Pacejka tire model suitable for motorcycle handling analysis. It describes the tire-roadinteraction forces with tire-road inclination angles up to 60 degrees.
Adams/Tire FTire ModuleFTire can describe the 3D tire dynamic response up to 120 Hz and beyond, due to its flexiblering approach for the tire belt. It can handle any road obstacle.All tire models support the Adams/Linear functionality.
